Baseline Output
Thursday, 07 June 2012 21:59

 

Baseline Output’, in tonnes per year, means the average production at the installation over the reference period 2005-2011 (baseline output) for installations operating every year from 2005 to 2011.

 

A given calendar year (e.g. 2009) may be excluded from that 7-year reference period.

 

If the installation did not operate for at least one year from 2005 to 2011, then the baseline output will be defined as yearly production until there are four years of operation on record, and afterwards it will be the average of the preceding three years of that period.

 

If, over the aid granting period, production capacity at an installation is significantly extended within the meaning of these Guidelines, the baseline output can be increased in proportion to that capacity extension.

 

If an installation reduces its production level in a given calendar year by 50% to 75% compared to the baseline output, the installation will only receive half of the aid amount corresponding to the baseline output.

 

If an installation reduces its production level in a given calendar year by 75% to 90% compared to the baseline output, the installation will only receive 25% of the aid amount corresponding to the baseline output.

 

If an installation reduces its production level in a given calendar year by 90% or more compared to the baseline output, the installation will receive no aid.
